Consumers deserve to know that Minnesota’s beef farmers and ranchers are committed to raising safe, wholesome and nutritious beef. The Beef Quality Assurance program is an educational program that focuses on empowering Minnesota’s beef farmers and ranchers to take responsibility for finding new and innovative production practices that improve the overall quality, safety and wholesomeness of beef. By continually working together in the beef community, we can continue to impact consumer acceptance of beef.
Beef Quality Assurance is a nationally coordinated, state implemented program that provides systematic information to U.S. beef producers and beef consumers of how common sense husbandry techniques can be coupled with accepted scientific knowledge to raise cattle under optimum management and environmental conditions. BQA guidelines are designed to make certain all beef consumers can take pride in what they purchase – and can trust and have confidence in the entire beef industry. Get Certified Online Today!
